Meanwhile through the tireless effort of our teachers and staff, BCS has successfully transition of our language classes to online classes with over 80% attendance. I like to take this opportunity to thanks all of our teachers who had to adapt and innovate so quickly in order to meet this new challenge, they are dedicated to continue our student’s education even in this difficult time.

I am grateful to have so many talented staff members especially our Language Deans, Asst. Deans and parent helpers who worked together to get our students online so quickly. I especially want to thank BCS IT William Hui and ANCCS IT Adam Cho (former BCS parent) for using their expertise in getting ready our online tools and ANCCS President Sandra Su for her help in providing so many training classes for our teachers.
